Community Ecology Research


Interested in our work? Looking for a MSc or PhD project? 

I am always looking for creative and motivated students who want to work in my lab (see also “Positions“). You are expected to develop an independent research project within the lab’s general research focus. You will be part of a highly interactive group and profit from the group’s experience in experimental and theoretical work. People who are interested in testing fundamental ecological concepts and people with a naturalist’s background are especially welcome.

The Altermatt lab is based both at the University of Zurich and Eawag.
